Then I am located in clever in Maryland and would be most likely to speak at
your event about videogames for accessibility and rehabilitation purposes.
That's right up my interests as a 24-year-old pleasure plegic game designer
third year at the Art Institute online.  I'm very involved with this group
also the moderator of gamers with physical disabilities at .

GDC scholar winner previously game developers conference and working on
prototypes of some games with friends in the process.  Please let me know if
I could help you this would be a great opportunity and be able to share
knowledge with people.

My goal is to develop games for rehabilitation all purposes games that are
accessible so you can use it for any purpose not just rehab.

Thank you Michele for letting Ben know about me.
Robert Florio
Art Institute online SGA President

Well, unfortunately I'm definitely overbooked for this year. To my 
knowledge the only person in the SIG who this is local for is Robert 
Florio. He lives nearby and I would think would make an excellent 
speaker -- Robert, any interest?
